Forget the taste, rate the product on what it's meant to do.,
This review is from: Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey 2273 g Strawberry Protein Shake Powder (Grocery)
Will everyone stop leaving reviews on this product, quoting they'd give it 4 or 5 stars because 'it tastes nice'......excellent, you don't mind drinking it because it's a nice flavour. the product isn't a drink like nesquick or drinking chocolate that he manufacturer would not sell if it didn't taste nice.
This is meant to be an addition to your daily diet, before and/or after training hard. whether it be lifting weights or a hard endurance session. the benefits of drinking it are to aid muscle tissue damage recovery and overall recovery time.
If you are serious about training hard, the taste of your shake shouldn't matter. it shouldn't be something you look forward to drinking because its strawberry flavour. it should be be part of your daily nutrition whatever the taste.
The product itself, I find to work very well. it's not going to bulk you up or add massive gains unless used along side other products, i.e weight gainers or bulk up powders. but it does speed up the recovery process. I have a shake within 15 mins of finishing training and one before bed. this allows me to train hard and recover enough to train as hard the next day.
When you are training to compete in an IronMan, this is the kind of stuff you want. you have to be training 1-3 times a day, sometimes 4-5 days in a row.
